Theodore Roosevelt Institute makes its home at LIU Post next fall

OYSTER BAY — The Theodore Roosevelt Institute on Long Island is making its home at LIU Post in partnership with the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site.

State Assemblyman Chuck Lavine recently secured $250 thousand in state funding to renovate one of the buildings at LIU Post and expand it to include the new Theodore Roosevelt Institute.

“He confronted many of the same challenges that we confront today and no one was prouder of our nation,” says Assemblyman Lavine.

Officials announced the creation of the new resource Friday surrounded by students. The institute will house some of Roosevelt’s writings and archives as well as act as a hub for scholarly research, workshops, and seminars.

“We see this growing into a school which will focus on public policy, on Theodore Roosevelt’s issues and history. We see this as an opportunity to build up our mission but also what it can do for LIU and the community,” says Tweed Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt’s great grandson. “This couldn’t be a more important time to listen to what some of our past leaders have said.”

The Theodore Roosevelt Institute will open next fall.
